TCP connections in Solaris 2.5 drivers

TCP connections in Solaris 2.5 drivers

Post by Guy Berna » Wed, 22 Jan 1997 04:00:00

I am trying to develop a Solaris 2.5 driver using TCP connections from inside a kernel
driver (not from user processes) to remote processes. There are some kernel routines
declared in /usr/include/sys/t_kuser.h, such as t_kopen(), t_kbind(), t_kconnect().
These routines should be the kernel equivalent of t_open(), t_bind(), t_connect()
routines at user level. However, these routines are encapsulated in a driver
(/kernel/misc/tlimod), so only t_kopen() and t_kclose() are accessible.

So the questions are:
1. What is this /kernel/misc/tlimod driver for ?? How to use it ??
2. Is there a way to use these unaccessible t_kxxx() routines ?
3. Is there another way to setup TCP connections from inside the kernel ? (SunOS had
kernel routines such as socreate, sosend, etc. which no longer exist in Solaris 2.5).

Thanks for help,

1. In search of Solaris 2.5 Netscape Navigator 3.0 plug ins

I am searching for plugins for Netscape Navigator on a SPARC Solaris 2.5
system.  While any help would be appreciated, I am especially looking for
plugs for RealAudio, wav, and Shockwave files.

Surely I don't have to go out and buy an IBM PC running windows or a
just to be able to access sites which use these technologies.
